As the end of August approaches us, it may feel like summer is ending but not on August Bank Holiday weekend when summer can be relived through the various events London has to offer. One being the vibrant, loud and fun for the entire family, Notting Hill Carnival taking place from Sunday 27th August to Monday 28th August. If you’re travelling as a family, Sunday is ‘children’s day’ which allows a much more relaxed vibe whilst Monday is the main parade. Either day, you will be able soak up the traditional Caribbean culture with the music and various food stalls which available making you wish summer was lasting that tad longer!
There are various other events occurring over the weekend, here are some that I hope to visit and be part of:
Field Day @ Dinerama -
A music festival with food options from all over the world – sign me up! Field Day have teamed up with Street Feast at their Shoreditch location - Dinerama. Feel no guilt with getting as many ‘Tequila Colada slushies’ as you want when you can dance and enjoy the rest of the night with various DJ sets.
The Beast @ Alexandra Palace –
You thought giant inflatable obstacles were just for kids, you were wrong! Through the whole bank holiday weekend, you can burn some of those extra calories through 32 inflatable obstacles which stretches across 272 meters. To finish this ‘mini workout’ there are plenty of refreshments including prosecco on tap (yes you read that right!) and live DJ’s. Tickets are available from www.thebeastlondon.com
Destiny’s Child Orchestra @ XOYO –
Any true DC fan’s face will light up with the sound of this. Although I was a little unsure how ‘Bootylicious’ was going to sound in classical form until I saw a clip of it through various bloggers who attended a preview event (lucky lucky girls). It consists of a 16-piece orchestra performing all of Destiny's Child's most iconic songs live on stage – what more could you want?
I hope these bank holiday events have given you some inspiration for your long weekend ahead or they may have even inspired you to have a fun filled upcoming event of your own.
